Already dissatisfaction is breaking
6ut over the decision in the Welsh
Ritchle fight in London. There is no
doubt but what Welsh had a slight
shade over the American, but experts
over the water contend that the mar
gin was too harrow to warrant fhe
shifting of a championship.
Ritchie Was the aggressor thrfltfgH
out, and towards the close of the
mill dealt out fiome severe punish
ment to the Bfiton. The referee's
decision was based solely oh the good
showing Welsh had made Earlier in
Ritchie and Welsh are matched
again to fight in November, and the
American will have a chance to even
tip for the defeat Willie, with the ex
perience gained in this mill, will not
delay his rally'BO long.
In the meantime Charlie White is
issuing challenges to both Ritchie
and Welsh, but there is little hdpe
that the new champion will gay any
attention to the Chicagbah at the
present time. On the showing he
made against Ritchie in Milwaukee,
White is the logical challenger. But
Welsh first wants to make- some
vaudeville money, as Ritchie got prac
tically all 6f the gate receipts for the
